Here is the next step.

Place the leaves on a foam pad, the back of a mouse mat works well, and rub with the tip of a ball stylus until they curl.

Now you need to glue the leaves onto the bud.

I have only glued it 3/4 of the way up as I want the leaves at the very top to curl out slightly.

I've only shown one leaf glued on so you can get a better idea what I mean.

Once you have one leaf glued on leave it to dry before attempting to glue on any more. The glue dot is so small even the tiniest touch at this stage will move it I currently have a bunch of buds with just one leaf on them drying... Boring I know but it really is the best way.

And that will be it from me until next week. Weekends round here get pretty busy, I need to give my eyes and finger a rest for a day or so plus, I have an almost completed dollhouse on my dining table which I promised Mick would be finished and off there this week :-)

Stay tuned...
